Some 7,000 Ipohites joined in September’s Ipoh Car-Free Day, which had the theme of “1 Malaysia”. This eleventh edition of the monthly event was attended by Ipoh City Mayor Dato’ Zamri Man and Council Secretary Mohd Zakuan Zakaria.
Non-governmental agencies participated in the event alongside government agencies. They were Persatuan Daybreak, Persatuan Pemulihan Orang Cacat, Perpustakaan Negeri Perak, Mini Petting Zoo, Jabatan Kebudayaan & Kesenian Negeri Perak, Jabatan Bomba & Penyelamat, Hospital KPJ, MICA, Kumpulan Gendang Besar, Fast Track and Kelab Sukan DBI, just to name a few. Meanwhile, Ipoh City Watch created an awareness campaign for recycling, as they did, at every Car-Free Day.
The overwhelming response saw Ipoh folk taking the opportunity to enjoy the vehicle-free road by walking, jogging, cycling, skateboarding, rollerblading and even horse-riding! The Ipoh Car-Free Day Programme was held with the aim of achieving lower carbon footprint in the city as well as to provide additional, albeit temporary, recreational areas for the community.
